The Tourism Commission of Argentina's lower house of Congress (Cámara de Diputados) has approved part of a recent bill to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on Monday, September 24, 2012, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of Tucumán.
The aforementioned bill to declare Monday, September 24, 2012, as one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina surfaced last April (2012-04-01), the week after another bill (2012-03-26) was introduced n Argentina's lower house of Congress to limit the number of national non-working public holidays in Argentina to 15 in any given year.
The bill now moves to the full floor of the lower house of Congress, and if approved then to the Senate for ratification and, if ratified, to the President of Argentina for signature into law.
Last month (2012-05-25) only a portion of the original draft bill was approved by the Argentine lower house of parliament, the part declaring a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on February 3, 2013, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of San Lorenzo.
